Planning Ahead: Wednesday Wisdom

Importance of planning ahead

This week’s piece of Wednesday wisdom is from entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker, Jim Rohn. He reinforces the importance of planning when it comes to business.

“Either run the day or the day runs you.” – Jim Rohn

Key takeaway:

Start every day with a game plan. Create a to-do list, ensuring you stay motivated and organised throughout the day. Without a plan of action, the hours can easily fly by, often without completing tasks you needed to finish.

By taking control of the day, you are able to organise yourself, carrying out each objective as efficiently as possible. In addition, allocating set time to every objective reduces the risk of becoming distracted or trying to complete numerous tasks at the same time.

By planning realistically, productivity can increase dramatically, with structure helping to take many retailers’ businesses to the next level.
